Paradigms was inspired by the recognition that humans need to know that there are things that are working. We need to know that there are possibilities. We thrive when we interact with each other in the context of making things better. We are inspired by ideas, and by each other, and by problems to solve. We are often at our best when things are at there worst. Right now in the world we face major challenges, and there are inspired inspiring people addressing those challenges. We can all be those people.
Why the Earth and the spiral? The Earth is our home, so that seems pretty self explanatory. The spiral comes from an ancient ruin on the island of Crete, and represents the endless cycle of regeneration.
Paradigms exists solely for the purpose of offering mental, emotional, spiritual nourishment. We’ve succeeded if you come away from listening, feeling inspired. The challenges humanity faces, all of our own making, can bring out the best in us if we so choose, and that’s what’s needed now. As individuals and collectively, our talents and skills and our willingness to do what’s needed may carry us through to a peaceful sustainable world.
